According to sources Mahindra's upcoming MPV finally has its official name it's called the Marazzo. Meanwhile he Marazzo name has been derived from a word in the Basque language, which translates to ‘shark’ in English. Accordingly the Marazzo is the first Mahindra passenger vehicle to be co-developed by its Research Valley, in Chennai, and its North American Technical Centre, and has been co-designed by Pininfarina and Mahindra’s Kandivali design studio, in Mumbai.
Meanwhile Ananthan Ramkripa, Chief Designer at Mahindra, says the design of the Marazzo is inspired by a shark, with several elements inside and out styled to mimic certain aspects of a shark. Furthermore the Marazzo MPV will be offered in seven and eight seat configurations and the seven seat variant gets captain seats for the second row, while the eight seater Marazzo gets a bench seat. To access the last row, the captain seats on the seven seater can be flipped forward, and the same goes for the eight-seat Marazzo, as its fold-able bench has a 40:20:40 split.
Further the Marazzo gets a black and beige T-shape
dashboard with faux aluminium inserts, leatherette seat upholstery, a 7.0 inch
touch screen for the infotainment system, automatic climate control and AC
vents for all three rows.
